What makes a good Lovers Lane?
First priority is seclusion. Without seclusion there is no Lovers Lane! Next is a beautiful view or surroundings. Finally bring your own music or have natural soothing sounds like the of the Gulf of Mexico.
Downtown off of Gordon Drive we have beachfront Mansions ( you never see anyone in them ) beaches with a 1/2 mile deserted shoreline. Lovers Key Park is another with miles of coastline, seclusion and the sounds of the Gulf.
Keeyland Island is just off of Marco Island, seclusion provided by boat. Well then, that must mean that 10,000 Islands provide 10,000 choices.
Thirty-Second Street South Beach (very close to everything) is located at the last public beach access point in Port Royal off of Gordon Drive.
Limited parking with Maybe 6 metered parking and 6 beach permit parking available, more parking is available on Gordon Drive a short walk from the beach.
Less parking means less people and more privacy.
Located minutes from 3rd Street South and 5th Avenue South, it offers seclusion yet minutes from all of what you may need for such a beach picnic.
The tide's in (low-tide) means less beach real estate available. High Tide means lots of beach real estate. Many Mansion beaches go further back for additional beach available for the beach-goer.
Bring a fishing rod for quiet times when you need a moment. Hey, she may want to fish too.
Very few people are on this 1/2 mile stretch of beach.
Walk from the entrance point until you find a secluded area of beach that you can call your own.
Entrance to 32nd Street south beach, quiet, secluded and tiny compared to most beach access. It can easily be missed. Look for the street signs.
I usually go to a Captain Kirk's Market now New and improved Captain & Krewe for the best Stone Crab in Naples, homemade key lime pie and beverages. Captain & Krewe 629 8th Ave S, Naples, FL 34102
Wynns Market is right down the street. It too offers downtown visitors gourmet meals to go, imported cheeses, cured meats fine wines, artisan breads and other things perfect for a beach picnic.
